Tanzania is Africa’s best country for a safari, according to a two-year-long survey by Safaribookings.com, based on thousand of reviews from safari travelers and industry experts. The key reason that Tanzania was rated the best is because it is home to the amazing Serengeti and the Ngorongoro Crater. But what else makes Tanzania so special? We give you 5 reasons why Tanzania should be on your bucket list.
Tanzania is full of wildlife. The national parks and game reserves cover almost 40% of the countries territory. One of the best places to view wildlife in Africa is the Ngorongoro Crater. Due to the abundance of wildlife and beautiful landscape it is one of Africa’s Seven Natural Wonders. But none can surpass the great migration in the Serengeti, when over a million of wildebeest thunder across the plains and cross the dangerous rivers.
Another reason to add Tanzania to you bucket list, is that you can combine a safari with the relaxation of white tropical beaches. The island of Zanzibar has around 30 beaches, nearly all of which are to die for. What better way to wash off the dust of your safari with a dip in the blue Indian Ocean. This exotic beach destination also offers also a variety of watersport activities and fascinating cultural tours in Stone Town.
The Kilimanjaro is as a magnet to thousands of people who come to Tanzania every year with just one goal: to conquer Africa’s highest peak. Kilimanjaro rises high above the open African plains in Tanzania. Reaching the summit of the Kilimanjaro is a true adventure. Tanzania’s second highest mountain, Mount Meru, is one of the most challenging and rewarding treks. Enjoy spectacular 360 degrees views of the Kilimanjaro and Rift Valley.
Tanzania is a lovely mix of cultures, with more than 120 different tribes. During your safari you can meet several tribes and learn more about their fascinating lifestyle first hand. From the famous Maasai to the Hadzabe Bushmen and the Datoga. Each of these tribes have different religions, rituals and customs. It gives you new insights and perspectives. A lot of people experience these encounters as one of the most memorable.
